It's awesome. Playing with keytar is tight. Also, it's really taking all my concentration to play on easy or medium of Pro Keys. Really awesome. Brain expanding. Like when Beatles Rockband challenged me to sing while playing instruments..
Also, this has taken music games up another notch. Just like when Rockband 1 came out and noone else supported full bands with mic, guitar, bass and drums. Now we have the keytar and harmonies. AND PRO MODE. Take yourself to the next level.
Get a keytar or pro guitar and play closer to the real thing!
It'll be hard to get interested in Guitar Hero (2010) without these features.

One of my all time favorite games is Rockband 2 and reason is because it is sooo deep and it was the 1st game to include Bass!!!!
Now onto my review, Rockband 3 starts where Rockband 2 takes off, except is much deeper than is predecessor. In career mode you have to do Goals and these consist of not missing any notes in a measure or perfect solo or keeping as much overdrive in a song as you can.
Now the setlist: Def Leppard has FINALLY made it into a rhythm game!!!! Swingin' Utters, Huey Lewis to name a few, I won't ruin it for you, and these songs are fun. Yes they are more keyboard friendly since the new plastic "instrument" to clutter your home is a keyboard for $80!!!! Seriously?
There is also a Promode guitar you can buy for $150 and actually be able to play the songs on your acoustic if you have one, but I don't have that kind of $ to shell out yet, but is it supposed to be challenging and requires practice...so if anyone has used it comment...sorry.
Another feature I really liked, me and wife sat down and played last night and I was on my profile and she was on hers and we were both getting different achievements....this in my opinion was much needed, and really adds to the competitiveness between you and your friends or spouse heh.
All in all I will give Rockband 3 a 10 out of 10 or a 5 out of 5 if you want to go that route.
I was half tempted to send this game back after beating the first 2 setlists. The songs were horrible. There were a few good ones.... but not many. I had to keep going to see what was coming up. Id say only 25% of the songs were great. It was like playing band hero again.
The tours and things were pretty neat it the sense of how they were set up. If you are thinking of buying either RB3 or GH: WoR.... Go with GH. Yes... it has a worse theme... but the songs are ALOT better
